Detection and management of outbreaks in Australia: well founded or a house of cards?

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialResearch

Abstract

Healthcare associated infection (HAI) monitoring remains a cornerstone of good infection prevention practice. Another cornerstone is detection of outbreaks. A third cornerstone is management of outbreaks to arrest their potential for harm. The final and sometimes most difficult piece is intervention which often requires modification of clinical practice or in devices or equipment used.
